Over the years since the release of the Nintendo Switch, we’ve seen a wide variety of variations of the Joy-Con controller. With so many colors on the market, should you can find a Joy-Con to express your own individual personality.
However, IGN bigwig Peer Schneider has noticed an obvious problem, and no, it has nothing to do with drifting analog sticks. There are simply too many shades of red within the variations on sale.
In a recent tweet, Peer shows a photo of the Neon Red, Super mario odyssey Red, Splatoon Pink and Joy-Con included in Mario Red & Blue Edition. And we have to admit that he’s right, they are all surprisingly similar, with only one very slight difference in tone between them. It also makes a good point that there are colors on the spectrum that Nintendo hasn’t yet used for Joy-Con; maybe now is the time to do it.
At least Peer is impressed that the Switch’s user interface can distinguish them when docked to the system. That is a nice touch!
We’re still coming to terms with the two shades of blue on display with the recently revealed limited edition Zelda: Skyward Sword Joy-Cons. Come on, Nintendo. Pick a shade of blue and stick with it.
